Lena Miculek is frostproof, and what better place to prove that than a town called Frostproof, Florida? That's exactly what the pro shooter and Second Amendment brand ambassador did at the 2021 Florida Open, taking the Overall Championship Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) Division title—a career first for Miculek. What's more, Miculek garnered the High Lady title and First Grandmaster at the same competition.
If you're not familiar with pistol caliber carbines, both the guns themselves and the competitions where they're shot are becoming increasingly popular. A pistol caliber carbine (PCC) is simply a rifle that's chambered for calibers that are normally shot through handguns. The result is terrific accuracy and very low recoil ... not to mention the fact that it allows you to run both a rifle and a handgun using the same ammunition, a real boon during these times. To earn her multiple titles at the 2021 Florida Open, Team SIG's Miculek competed through 10 stages using a SIG MPX PCC 9 mm with a ROMEO3XL red-dot reflex sight.
“This match was a difficult one, but my goal throughout was consistency and I managed to come away with a personal achievement that I am very proud of,” added Miculek. “In 2021 I set some lofty goals for myself which included taking my PCC competition to the next level and proving, through wins like this, that females in professional shooting sports can consistently move past the high lady title and win it all.”
“Congratulations to Lena on ... earning the overall championship title for the PCC division at this year’s Florida Open,” said Tom Taylor, SIG chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales. “We are extremely proud of Lena for this monumental achievement, and for being a trail blazer for females in the industry. This is just the start of the 2021 competition season and knowing how dedicated Lena is to her training, and her unmatched skill as a PCC competitor, we can’t wait to see what her achievements will be as the 2021 season continues to unfold.”
